I joined Rubin Lewis O’Brien in 2004 as a paralegal in the Childcare department. After qualifying as a solicitor in March 2007, I have continued to specialise in Childcare proceedings. I maintain both a friendly and robust approach when advising and representing my clients, no matter how serious or complex the issues are.
In September 2011 I was admitted onto the specialist Law Society Children Panel, meaning I am now also able to represent and take instructions from children in proceedings. Later that month, I was delighted to become a Partner in the Firm and tasked with expanding the busy Childcare department.
Outside of work I enjoy catching up with friends or improving my culinary skills, both of which are usually assisted with a little help from the grape and grain! I also travel to Bordeaux about twice a year to keep up my French and relive my memories following a memorable year’s work placement during my degree.
My favourite sport is football, whether watching a match from the comfort of my armchair, or the stinging discomfort of the windswept terrace fondly known as the “Shed” at Newport County AFC. I am an elected committee member for the Newport County AFC Trust which provides a voice for its fans while actively supporting the club at grass roots and community levels.
“Thank you for giving me a piece of my life back, you were great”
“Thank you for helping me to get my family back together.”
“It takes a special kind of person to do the job you do. We can only be thankful that we had you.”
“I used this firm for help with social services they were really helpful and supported me all the way with the case they were always there to answer any questions or worries I had, I worked a lot with Rebekah Lane she was always on time for every meeting I had and would always send me everything I needed/asked for. I would always get the best advice for me and my children. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone, I am a young single mum to three children and find it hard sometimes to trust people but this firm made me feel very comfortable and they were very easy to talk to. I would be using them again if I ever need them.”
“Thank you so much for supporting us it means so much to us all as a family to get the children home where they belong before Christmas. Best wishes always.”
